Iran threatened Wednesday to “decisively respond” to any US attack on the Islamic Republic following Tehran’s killing of three American soldiers at a military base in Jordan.

US President Joe Biden says Iran-backed militia were behind drone strike that killed 3 US troops and injured 25 in Jordan

The US has signaled it is preparing for retaliatory strikes in the Mideast in the wake of the Sunday drone attack that also wounded at least 40 troops at Tower 22, a secretive base in northeastern Jordan that’s been crucial to the American presence in neighboring Syria.

Violence has erupted across the Mideast, with Iran striking targets in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Pakistan and Syria.

A U.S. Navy destroyer in the waterway shot down an anti-ship cruise missile launched by the Houthis late Tuesday, the latest attack targeting American forces patrolling the key maritime trade route, officials said.

The US later launched a new round of airstrikes targeting the Houthis.
